Thanks for posting. How would you characterize it relative to similar colors like snuff, tobacco or fox? Darker, 'Red-er' Snuff? Snuff, but less orange and more brown?  Etc?
^^^FTFY^^^  For me 8.5UK Robert/Uetam/Oscar
I'll float a GMTO idea, although for my sake, I really shouldn't...  String Loafer, Uetam Last, (full-vamp) Brown Edge Trim on a Leather Sole in Carmina's LIGHTER Grey suede. It's not the same as the blueish grey that the chelsea boot was done in, instead this one has flesh colored undertones.  [[SPOILER]]
Dropped the Blake Boots in the mail today and thought I'd post this montage to reflect on all the good times we had together.  I think they actually worked best without cuffed pants.   Got nothing to wear with my green cords now.          
I would get the brown myself, except I already have these Aldens  [[SPOILER]]
 I think the Carmina trees are actually made of oak, not cedar.  Since they aren't cedar, which is used for is moisture absorbing properties, it doesn't really matter that they are finished, since oak does not absorb moisture at nearly the rate that cedar does.  However, there is a hole bored in the front portion of the tree and the bottom is shaped in such a way that it allows moisture to escape through that hole.  They aren't lasted, just size specific.  I can't say for...
Got These.  Love em.  Got the matching belt from Steve.  Thanks again, Steve!    P.S. Got the Navy Blue Suede joints from Steve too!
Yes. Go with Crepe or one of the Reltex soles. It's way worth it over the leather/leather-based soles in terms of comfort.
I think I'm a more common size than you.  Aren't you 11.5?  If so, scary that I know that. Agreed on the plain toe in this particular instance.
Just a point of reference:  I was able to get full ask for my Blake Boots in about 36hrs of listing them on eBay.  I got a lot of best offers too, many from people who clearly wanted to resell them (they had a lot of other auctions for NOS shoes and the like.)   Just thought I'd throw it out there incase anyone wondered what their pair might bring, or how to price them.
